Its just equal parts of each.
First make your flakes as per manufacturers to a liquid.

Then to make 300ml just mix 100ml shellac, 100ml methylated spirits (called denatured alcohol in USA) 100ml boiled linseed oil.

Keep it in airtight jar, and shake before using as it settles out quickly.

I just put it in a jar and have roughly 1 quarter shellac flakes and 3 quarters alcohol, that usually gives me the best mix, all done eyeballed, use some PTFE tape around the rim of the jar to stop it leaking out. If you want it thinner just put in more alcohol, thicker put in more flakes.
